Nothing screams luxury like a brand-new Mercedes, especially one tricked out with a full suite of tech toys. The 2014 Mercedes Benz S550 is the manufacturer's most high-tech sports car yet, with dual 12.3-inch HD screens, Burmester Surround Sound, built-in Wi-Fi, an 80GB hard drive that stores navigation info and an extra 10GB for music storage. Throw that on top of the included LED interior lighting and the ability to unlock the car from a smartphone, and this vehicle is the best way to help your loved one drive like James Bond. Choose from among various sleek shades of black, silver and blue.
